Blast from the Past

You’ll never guess what The Man Beast was watching Sunday morning – a Power Rangers movie!

Do y’all remember Power Rangers? I don’t because I never watched them. But I find it very funny that my husband, a grown man, watched a show from my high school days (1995), and the kiddos weren’t even in the room!

I will tell you a few movies I do like – the cheesier the better:

  • Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt were fabulously fun in this movie. (And the boys at Maxim have it wrong – SJP does not look like a horse. I happen to believe she’s beautiful because she is unique.)

  • Goonies

Sean Astin in braces. Can it get any cuter? Yes. Corey Feldman before his Surreal Life episode. Anyone in the mood for a Baby Ruth?

  • License to Drive

Do I secretly have a crush on the Cories? I don’ think so…but this one sure was fun! (And I remember the dad being the same guy from Disney’s Mr. Boogety. Do you remember that movie? It was waaay before Halloweentown or Twitches).

  • Breakfast Club

No 80s movie list is complete without the Brat Pack. So classic. (And I do have a thing for Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall – so you might as well include ALL of Molly’s movies in my list).

  • Adventures in Babysitting

Elisabeth Shue was the greatest, wasn’t she? I love it. And I love the opening sequence: He walked up to me and asked me if I wanted to dance. He looked mighty fine and so I thought I might take the chance… *sigh* What preteen didn’t think that her dress was the coolest. Her hair was the coolest. Okay, maybe it was just me. I’m a slight dork. Now you finally know – I can come out of the closet.

Those are handful of my favorites. What were some of yours? (Careful now, you might just date yourself.Challenge Me!)

Until next time…

    Yeah, umm I am older than, I will say this..I loved Bewitched, The Monkees, Emergency, I could go on and on. By the way, one of the orginal Power Rangers was just found guilty of murder.

    PS. I love the Breakfast Club and Weird Science.

    Shut up! Are you for real? I did not know that…of course, what do I know? I used to watch Peewee Herman…and we all know what HE did!

    I loved the movie Say Anything. Watched it over and over, dreamed someone would come and hold a radio outside my window…. ok thats enough of that lol

    actually I have to give this some thought, I was on classmates the other night and was looking at the places I went to school, and it brought back some big memories, people who I haven’t thought about in ages…

    ah good memories….

    I was just barely too old to watch Power Rangers as a kid (I think I was in 4th grade when the first came out), but I’ve seen bits here and there babysitting and it’s CHEESY! I can’t stand any of the kid violent stuff: Power Rangers, Pokemon, etc. They drive me nuts.

    That said, I do enjoy an episode of Hannah Montana or many of the other Disney channel shows when I get the chance. =)

    Oh, and Adventures in Babysitting is one of my best friend’s favorites, so I watched it with her one time. I didn’t get what all the fuss was about (she had been talking it up for weeks). I suppose it wasn’t really meant for watching for the first time as an adult.

    I’m sure if I watched some of those movies now, they’d be uber cheesy. But at the time, they served their purpose. šŸ™‚
